Does anyone have a recommendation for a twist shackle for an aussie halyard. When hoisted, the blocks are skewed. I have been sailing it, so it is not a problem, but would rather have a shackle do the twisting. Not sure how big the shackle should be, strength, etc.

Thanks!
Ted

This would be a replacement for part 11220000 SHACKLE STND "D" 4.7 MM


from the Hobie catalogue, I see these twist shackles

TWIST SHACKLE - THREADED PIN
Part #
Pin Dia. Width Length Max Ld#

SP170005
3/16” 1/2” 7/8” 2640

SP170006
1/4” 9/16” 1 3/8” 4400

Interesting mix of metric and imperial measurements, and not sure which lines up the best.
